Exploring the role and effects of diet and food components on brain health
Task Force Information
This Task Force brings the focus on the role of nutrition and diet for optimising brain development and maintaining brain health across lifespan. To do so, the Task Force drives scientific knowledge on the effects of food components on brain developments and maintenance of brain functions. It also reviews the latest scientific evidence to make it available to a wider scientific community; and increases awareness of the importance of nutrition for the maintenance of brain health across the lifespan.
Given the success of our previous "Nutrition for the Ageing Brain" symposia, we are already planning the organisation the 5th edition in 2024. One of the key successes was to have a tripartite organising committee that was able to identify key topics of interest for all interested stakeholders. If you wish to co-create the next edition this unique event, sign up for this task force.
